Halloween ready: this new porch is all treat – no trick.

This recently completed front entry porch in Arlington provides a  gracious covered landing for guests as well as a sunny spot for the  owners to enjoy a morning cup of tea.

Two new granite steps connect with the sidewalk and introduce the new walkway. The flagstone modular pavers from Belgard Harscape Mega Lafitt series are set in a bed of stone dust. The decking is mahogany and craftsman style tapered square columns and painted wood trim blend with the existing house style. The owners started a recent dinner party of this landing with a toast to the new porch and the fine craftsmanship of contractor David Picazio of Arlington.

Roof, deck, and low walls are complete and awaiting delivery of columns. Mahogany decking and stair treads add richness and color to the entry. Stone dust on the walkway in preparation for setting of granite pavers.
